Worldbuilding Writing Workshop

In fiction, setting can be as important of a character as the people. And in speculative fiction, that character often needs to be built from the ground—and history, and culture, and physics—up.

In fiction, setting can be as important of a character as the people. And in speculative fiction, that character often needs to be built from the ground—and history, and culture, and physics—up. In this workshop, we’ll be tackling worldbuilding. What issues arise when you set a story in a world that’s not our own? How can we build worlds as complex and lived-in as the real one? How can we avoid creating the same fantastical world that’s been created a thousand times before? We’ll attempt to answer these questions and more through writing exercises and class discussion. This workshop is designed to have you step forward carrying the seeds of a brand new world.
